Well i'm not the lacy type really but i knew exactly what i was gonna do.... i was given this lovely CELTIC ANGEL to work with..... (you can see her better in the pictures below.)
I am a member of the SMEARED INK DT and the challenge there this week is GOTHIC NEW BORN (i cant imagine which idiot picked that theme!!!..... Oh it was me!)..... Kapree on the team is expecting a Hallowe'en baby ( a little girl.....yay!).... and i wanted to do a 'welcome' canvas for the little one.
The canvas is 18''x 10''.... i painted it... stamped wire mesh on it..... added fabric mesh... black lace.... i coloured images with promarkers/ink and paint. I made flowers from paper, fabric and an old coke can... i used silk leaves and black plaslic ones i cut off an old head band of the lasses.
I have no idea whose stamp the baby image is, but its adorable! The mesh stamp is from QUOTH THE RAVEN and the wings are cut from one of the FLYING HEART digi images both form smeared ink. The window is a freebie digi from the internet.
Please come and check out the challenge at CRAFTS AND ME..... and play along at SMUDGY ANTICShttp://smudgyantics.blogspot.com/.
i shall enter this mixed media canvas into the challenges below.... http://smudgyantics.blogspot.com/ GOTHIC NEW BORN
